Some additional resources to Ryan’s Net Art Tutorial

Here’s a video tutorial inspired by Ryan’s Net Art tutorial which shows the use of to.be as well as a new way to make selections in Photoshop using a color range. I worked with a NYPL archive image of the Unisphere and made a couple of pieces.

One thing I couldn’t cover was the process for making a screen capture of your to.be field using Quicktime. That’s because I was using it to make the tutorial above!

So here’s the basic process. Open Quicktime and select new screen recording:

new-screen-recording

Then click record.

record

Your next prompted to click (anywhere) to start recording full screen, or drag an area to record part of the the screen.

click-drag-the-area

That should look something like this.

click-drag-hit-record

Click start recording and the area with begin recording. The gif loop is probably very short so you should only record a couple seconds. To stop the recording, click the stop icon in the top of screen tool bar. Looks like this:

stop-button-copy

You should now have a screen recorded video file of your composition on newhive.com or to.be. With that you can import video to layers and create a GIF and post to your site.
